Description
A cunning concept delightfully executed, to set the records broken by Columbus alongside other quantifiable achievements, worldwide, over a period of about a hundred years from c.1450. The fascinating picture that emerges is of a dynamic world in which a number of expanding cultures were reaching out from their traditional spheres, and in which the scale and range of Columbus' achievement seems thoroughly characteristic. Abundant and wonderful illustrations. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
